Encyclopedia

Taro’s grandmother passed this morning. She was 94, and one of the coolest old ladies I ever knew. The first time we met, she regaled me with her full knowledge of the English language, “Hello,” “How do you do?,” and, “encyclopedia!” We never figured out where she picked up that last one. She will be missed.
I’m on my way out to Nara from now.

  1. My condolences to T and his family. Although I never got to meet T’s obaasan, the stories I heard about her kindness and caring were very cool.
